Read full description of the books:
I loved this book even more than the first one. The plot actually progressed from B to C (Merithuros is now on its way towards healing) unlike some middle-of-trilogy books. I still find Kate Constable's writing very dream-like and uplifting, and I love that the Chosen One is a teenage girl with doubts and fear and drama, one who has to grow up: not just age, but deal with her feelings, cope internally with ambiguous outcomes, and learn to both weild power and command (not merely demand) respect.
I think Calwyn's struggle to figure out how to relate to Darrow is realistic: he's an uncommunicative and preoccupied older male who likes her but has other things on his mind. He's just likable enough to keep the reader (and Calwyn) with him. I enjoyed Tonno as the well-meaning guy-who-doesn't-get-it. Mica became sort of irritating in this book however, as her brash defensiveness got in the way of good judgment. I also enjoyed the dichotomy between Calwyn's mystical healing and Darrow's practical, magic-free handling of daily administration in a crisis situation. Constable seems to know it takes all kinds to make a world. Her world-view is modern without being too preachily P.C., and her handling of the inner experience of magic/mysticism is a real strength.
